While food trucks get all the shine on the local affordable-dining scene, it's easy to forget that some of them are offshoots of actual brick-and-mortar establishments. Case in point: Sugar Rush Miami, the city's first baked-goods truck. The mobile bakery wows with so-bad-for-you-they're-good concoctions such as deep-fried cupcakes and super-thick milkshakes. But it's worth heading west on Sunset Drive to visit the store that begat Sugar Rush, Sweetness Bakeshop and Café. There's a lot more to be found in the inviting, cool-colored space. First off, there are - surprise! - savory items. A range of sandwiches ($4.95 to $5.95) and other simple lunch fare, like salads ($5.95), keeps the suburban spot bustling even at lunchtime. There are also sweets to be found here that aren't aboard the truck. Aside from cupcakes, Sweetness offers non-cake desserts ($1) such as tangy, mousse-like key lime pie shots and honey-goat cheese puddings, which sound almost virtuous enough to have for breakfast. If good intentions be damned, though, guayabera cupcakes, with a guava-paste filling and stiff cream cheese frosting, also make a delicious start to the day. There's another important fact about Sweetness worth pointing out to party people: Should a sugar craving strike in the wee hours of a Friday or Saturday night, it's the only local bakery open late - "until the last person leaves," which is usually around 1 a.m.

Placed an order for my baby shower...first the top tier of the cake was leaning to a side,then the cake was supposed to have had freshcut strawberries inside and to my surprise when I cut into it was a plain simple dry cake with vanilla filling NO STRAWBERRIES!!!!!!!. Then my shot glasses were also supposed to have whip cream topping and some chocolate insert to make them look more presentable... NOTHING!!!!!!! All I got were plain simple looking shot glasses... What a shame after all the good things I heard about this place they let me down... NEVER AGAIN!!!!! What a waste of my hard earned money
The largest variety of cupcakes in Miami. The Guayabera is to die for and the Irish Car Bomb comes in a close second. It's cozy and reasonably priced. The mini cupcakes are $1 each and are perfect for tasting more than one flavor. This is a family-run business and only the freshest ingredients are used in their recipes. Check out their recent interview on NBC: http://www.nbcmiami.com/around-town/food-drink/Hot_Topic__Sweetness_Bakeshop_and_Cafe_Miami.html.
Latin bakeries have their country-specific pastries. Cupcake shops have icing-topped sweets. Lunch cafés have sandwiches, and couture cake shops have custom fondant creations. Each has its specialty, but what if you can't decide where to go? Hit up Sweetness Bakeshop & Café in West Kendall. It's a coffee and pastry joint in the morning, a savory lunch fix in the afternoon, and a place for a sweet sugar rush anytime. The year-old, family-run operation is probably best known... More »
